Read Aston Villa’s Verdict
Aston Villa have certainly been handed a boost with Kortney Hause and Frederic Guilbert both being available for selection.
However, it does look like James Chester’s career at Villa could be at an end, with his hamstring problem still leaving him out of the team.
Ahmed Elmohamady did well against Bournemouth, and it would be tough to drop him after playing so well.
However, with Villa facing a tough task against Everton, and after losing their first two, changes may be in the offing.
